My career has led me through the ever evolving technology and business landscape as I bridge complex topics with those who need to learn. At heart, I’m a writer, teacher and strategic thinker with my feet planted firmly in the practical. Give me a complex topic or problem and I’ll make sense of it, make recommendations, determine a course of action and lead implementation.
In the business world, I’ve worked as a project manager, instructional designer and trainer/coach. I’ve helped businesses navigate change, launch websites and major change initiatives. I’ve designed learning, created new processes and facilitated many training sessions. Plus I’ve helped small businesses go digital and create new revenue streams.
I’ve also earned an MA in theology and spiritual direction from St. Kates, learned shamanism with teachers around the world, and studied with Dr Amit Sood, Chair of the Mayo Clinic Mind-Body Initiative, Linda Tellington-Jones, founder of TTouch and Mary Hayes Grieco of the Midwest Institute for Forgiveness training. I’m a provider at Pathways, teach Shamanic journeying, forgiveness and Tellington TTouch for dogs, lead retreats, and provide individual spiritual coaching.
I’m blending these two rivers of work, using skills I’ve honed in my corporate career to help socially responsible and sustainable businesses with change and projects. Plus I’m working with individuals to who want to create soulful work and transform their relationship with money.
I lives in St. Paul, Minnesota on a little lake. I love locally grown food from farmers I know, all animals especially dogs, sled dog races, hiking and kayaking in the wilderness and traveling where ever my heart calls.
